If you could search my comments you'd probably see I'm fairly critical of Patrick's work on Giant Bomb. And while I stand by what I've said in the past I feel I should also say what a great job he's done lately. On the Game of the Year podcasts I felt he was a good voice of reason (they got pretty heated) and his articles 'On Games, Reviews and Criticism' were great to read.
I'd hate to only ever be negative about someone and never say anything positive about them, particularly when I've been so critical in the past and they've done some great stuff lately... though the crazed Patrick Defense Force is still annoying.
So yeah, thanks for all the good work lately Patrick, you've made me glad I pay for this site. Keep it up!
(For the record I don't think he needs my praise, I'm not psychotic, but I'd rather be even-handed than seen as a dick/troll)
